A superbly renovated country house in a sought-after location with outbuildings and equestrian facilities.
Westons House occupies a rural and very private setting close to the sought-after village of Rusper. It is approached through electric gates up a tree lined drive which culminates at the front of the house with triple garage block to one side. Rusper has a shop with post office, primary school and two public houses.
The principal reception rooms are of generous proportions and retain much of their original charm, with exposed wooden beams and inglenook fireplaces in the drawing and dining rooms. These rooms have a wonderful outlook over the gardens and grounds.
Recent additions include the fitted, vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, centred at the heart of the house and opens onto an extensive south westerly facing terrace, ideal for summer entertaining. The second addition is the vaulted master bedroom suite and balcony.
The bedroom accommodation is well arranged with a further four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor, with two bedrooms and a roof store above. The house also benefits from planning permission to create a new galleried entrance hall. Work to the foundations has already been done.
The gardens and grounds are of particular note with the house sitting well within its plot. To the rear of the house doors from the kitchen/breakfast room open onto a beautiful stone terrace, with a superb oak framed summer house to one side. Steps rise to a sweeping lawn and lead to the stables, which are further to the south west.
To the front of the house, the tree lined drive is flanked by further areas of lawn and there is a large paddock to the south. As you approach the house the drive splits into two. The right fork continues to the house and the left to the stabling, manège and hard standing. The equestrian facilities consist of eight stables and a tack room.
Adjacent to the main house, set to one side, there is a substantial period barn, formally converted and operated as a children’s nursery, with potential for conversion to accommodate a number of different uses subject to the usual planning permissions and consents.
There are two well-appointed two and three bedroom cottages, with separate access, situated at the start of the drive.
The cottages are available by separate negotiation.
